A 7-month-old baby at center of Oklahoma Amber Alert has been found dead
On February 19th Police responded to a report of domestic assault on the 1500 block of Lakecrest Drive in Norman Oklahoma.
31-year-old Victor Minjarez attacked the mother of their child on that day and then kidnapped and ran away with their 7-month-old son, Jody Minjarez. An Amber alert was issued several days after the child was taken.
Tragically on the Wednesday morning of March 7th, the body of 7-month-old Jody was found.
On February 23rd the mother had police issue an order that her son be returned after being taken. Later that day Victor sent a text to a friend saying that the mother would “never see her child again”. He fled the scene in a rented U-haul truck.
On March 7th when police could not find the child or Minjarez they issued a full Amber alert. Later on the same day they found and arrested the assailant in the 3000 block of Venice Blvd.
Minjarez is now in the Oklahoma County Jail and booked for first-degree murder and desecrating a human corpse.
